Being extremely hard on ourselves is very common in the very high stress and anxiety space because that’s kind of what got us there in the first place. Now, I love using the word curiosity. So when I get into these instances, I go to a curious place and say “Is this necessary? Does it really impact other people? The people that are impacted, do I really care what they think?” So much of our struggle in life is caring massive about what other people think of us. The reality is that there are only handful of people in the world that can affect my emotions in terms of what I think. Catering to everybody else is to my own detriment.
